    First of all welcome to AS!

    Secondly you've posted in the wrong section DOH!!! but ur forgiven for being a newbie (FAO Mods: Pls re-direct to relevant section)

    As for the airbox mods this usually referrs mainly to the Mk4 - Im not totally clued up on the Mk5 so would rather not comment than giving u duff information.

    I know theres a mod available for about £500 on the 1.9 which boosts power from 150 to 200 bhp - so dont know if there's a similar mod for the smaller oil burner.....Someone will be along soon to confirm.

    Hope u get the answers u require....and no doubt youll be asked to post up some piccies of ur motor.

    Also get ur self registered in the regional forum and maybe get ur self along to the next meet (17th June) providing u live up here! lol
